On July 9, 1877, New York Hospital opened its Training School for Nurses. Its purpose was to provide a staff of well-trained nurses for the hospital. As early as 1799, a series of lectures and clinical instructions was given by Dr. Valentine Seaman, attending surgeon of the hospital, to train nurses and midwives. The Florence Nightingale method of nursing was also employed. In 1900, as a result of hospital growth, graduate nurses were added to the staff. Pupils became less of a service arm of the hospital, and more of an educational institution. In 1930 a Committee on Nursing Organization recommended the reorganization of the school and in 1935, the school name was formally changed to New York Hospital School of Nursing. Later, in in 1942, the nursing school became a university school under Cornell and changed its name to the Cornell University-New York School of Nursing. (from Adele Lerner, history in "An Introduction to the Medical Center Archives of New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center).
